Pretty good beer.. It's like taking a shot.. The 14% alcohol this beer is taste stronger.. Well brewed... Great beer to taste after you've tasted the lower percentage beers on the list when you're at the brewery.. Bottle is fashionably nice .. This is a beer you would like to pour a glass in sip on it during a nice steak dinner..

Small little 2 oz pour provided by Bob at his tasting.

Pours out a still dark brown, with no head, or lacing. A guess I should've expected that.

Smells like a rush of booze. Some burnt brown sugar and dark fruit.

Tastes more like a liquor than a beer for sure, much like Utopias. However, at 29%, Utopias hides its alcohol a bit better than this 14% quad/barleywine/strong ale/monstrosity. Huge alcohol burn, followed by vanilla, dark fruits, and burnt sugars. Very Cognac like.

Medium bodied, feels silky and delicate on the tongue. Alcohol content is very noticeable.

An interesting beer, but not one I'd want much of again due to how hot it is.

From the batch released on Black Friday (not the exploding batch). Pours a deep dark brown which is almost black in the glass. Complex odor, sherry is the most prominent. Smooth flavor with obvious notes from the barrel and some dark fruitiness from the yeast. No carbonation, tastes like a strong beverage, but the alcohol is only a little noticeable on the lips.

Overall this is really likable, and obviously a brew that Mystic put a lot of care into. 'Belgian Quad' doesn't really describe it. Maybe more like a strong barleywine. I'd like to pick up another and see how it ages.
